Blizzard have hotfixed a problem that was causing some Epic and Rare League of Explorers cards to be offered too much. The issue only impacts a handful of cards, and was brought to Blizzard's attention two weeks ago by HearthArena.


In Arena, cards from the latest set get a bonus chance of being offered. At the moment, League of Explorers cards are getting a 50% bonus chance. Class cards get a 100% bonus. HearthArena posted that they had noticed some anomalies in how often cards were offered. In particular, League of Explorers neutral Rares had the opposite of a bonus, while League of Explorers neutral Epics were being offered too much.

The four neutral Rares in League of Explorers are Ancient Shade, Eerie Statue, Summoning Stone, and Wobbling Runts. There are two neutral Epics, which are Djinni of Zephyrs and Naga Sea Witch. These are the only cards that will be affected by the change.

Blizzard have posted on their forums that they have hotfixed the issue.

We’ve hotfixed the proportion of League of Explorers cards that appear while building an Arena deck.

Previously, some League of Explorers cards were scarce, while others appeared much too frequently.

League of Explorers cards should now correctly appear about 50% more often in Arenas than other sets.

Lead Designer Ben Brode acknowledged that HearthArena's Reddit post was key to them noticing the problem.

Shoutout to /u/HearthArena for alerting us to the issue!

As you can see, this will change very little in Arena, but it is good to see that Blizzard are keeping an eye on the community for when such things are pointed out.

      Hi everyone! I would like to update you on my new role as a Hearthstone guide writer.
      Hi everyone! I would like to update you on my new role as a Hearthstone guide writer.
      As some of you will know, I've been writing news here at Icy-Veins for over a year. A lot has changed in that year, both personally, and within Hearthstone. I switched from Arena to Constructed with the introduction of Standard, and have started to cast quite a few large events.
      With those things in mind, I've been let loose on writing guides. I won't be touching Sottle's high level content, but instead will be focussing on keep your old decks fresh. I will be updating decks which have dropped out of the meta, and making them playable to somewhere in the region of Rank Five. They will be weaker than the meta decks, but if you have played the older versions you will probably find that you already own many of the cards, and experience, required to play them.
      Hopefully this will fill a gap for some of you. I'll be a little busy for the first few weeks as I get the hang of things and concentrate on producing quality content, but feel free to let me know if there's an archetype you feel has been left out.
